Afternoon all,

Trawling through the Black Friday offers on my lunch break and had an email of Halfords advertising a new product that has been launched as part of their Black Friday event (went live today) - an Assist Deluxe 20" Electric Bike for £398. This is the same price as the other Assist they feature, yet comes with an improved battery and overall specs (see below from their website). I was tempted by the original version at £398 - yet alone this!

I think this will be perfect for smaller commutes/leisure rides and looks much nicer than the white version!

Taken from their website:

The NEW Special Edition (Limited Stock) Assist Deluxe Hybrid Electric Bike - 20" Wheel is the perfect commuting companion. This model is based on one of our current best-selling Electric Bikes (Assist 20” Hybrid Electric Bike) – however, this deluxe edition comes packed with even more features and improved specifications: 7Ah battery, front and rear battery operated lights, reflective wall tyres, improved comfort grips with anodised red styling and red bungee cables to secure luggage.

Hot from me - maybe even buy...

If its for smaller commutes and leisure why bother? .Just cycle!.


Not all have the physical ability, or local flat terrain, to be comfortable on a pedal cycle. Also, more pratically, not everyone likes to get to work awash with perspiration (except Prince Andrew).

Not an e-biker personally, but the value of these things in reducing the amount of short car journeys, and thereby congestion, pollution, parking etc, can't be underestimated. Glad they're getting so affordable. Heat

Fair point if you were comparing a normal spec e-bike but this bike only has 1 gear and a 24V battery. This likely creates more sweat when you come to a hill etc. If you are comparing it to a single speed bike without a motor then yes this might be an improvement. To get this e-bike up a hill even with full power on you are likely going to have to work really hard on the pedals.
I noticed something on the advert it doesn't state the motor wattage which normally is often stated as 250W the legal maximum for the road but that isn't stated so this is likely less than 250W. They have written Shengei motor but I think its likely Shengyi who are a huge manufacturer of EU certified hub motors. Possibly this model in 180W form as suitable for small 20" wheels.

Nothing wrong with the motor though, its's a geared hub motor with planetary gears which are normally plastic nylon so may need replacing after a few years (aliexpress typically). On the advert it says LCD display but this just has a series of LED lights to indicate mode etc. Not a bad thing as when water gets into LCD displays they look awful which I've seen on one or two cheap e-bikes.
Improved battery - R&D department must have got together and decided let's put a massive battery on the back mudguard.
I am just kidding it's a cheap electric bike and am aware they probably mean capacity.
Single spedd - beware!
